If you are a member of the media, I prefer that you use the contact form on this site rather than reaching me through my university.

However, if you find it necessary to get in touch with me on an urgent basis (e.g., you are “on deadline”), I am an Associate Professor of Entrepreneurship and Director of the Master of Entrepreneurship (M.E.) Degree Program in the College of Business at Western Carolina University (WCU) and administrative support personnel can generally find me.


The following are examples of media coverage either quoting me or that included one of my sites:
